You need to take ferry from Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal to Shekou port. You can take MTR Airport Express to Kowloon-C1 exit, then transfer to 281A (KMB) to Austin Road. It takes around 45 mins with HK$107.8. You can buy the ticket on the spot. The ferry departs at 10:00, 11:30, 13:15, 15:30 and 18:00.
